Quotes

Another group of passengers had brought a friend along whose husband had recently passed away. "I gave them every reason why I couldn't just drop everything and go on a train trip across the country" she said. "But they wouldn't take no for an answer."
"One of the things I like the most about traveling by train is the social aspects. It’s like your in a living room and you get to meet people and make friends.”"
"An archeologist once told me," added Kenick, "that a good place to camp is a good place to camp whether it's 150 years ago or today. That's why this was a gathering spot on the Oregon Trail."
